It's unanimous—hooks are the only way for the less orderly members of the family to keep their clothes off the floor (are you listening, Will and Colm?).

Above: Available in boxes of a half dozen, UK designer Schofield's Coat Eggs are an amusing take on the traditional coat peg; designed and laid in Yorkshire. For more information, go Daniel Schofield Studio.
Above: The Hangers Collection La Familia by Chilean company Bravo are made from brass and raulí wood. For more information, go to Bravo!
Above: Inject a a little comic book communication into the daily scramble to get out the door with the Blurb Coat Rack from UK designer Bettina Nissen, made from laser cut powder coated steel and supplied with a dry erase pen; £10 for a single, £15 for a double, and £30 for a Coat Rack.
